What is a Thai Oil massage?

Thai Oil Massage treatments are a mix of Thai Traditional Massage, classic Western oil massage, Indian Ayurvedic massage techniques, knowledge of Western essential oils, and Thailand's ancient traditional plant and herbal knowledge.

Thai Oil Massage treatments mix Thai Traditional Massage, Ayurvedic and Western massage and Thai herbalism.

Thai Massage is new to western spas, but it has been a style of alternative medicine for hundreds of years. A Thai massage is typically a full-body massage lasting up to two hours. It uses a combination of passive stretches and gentle pressure along the body’s energy line system to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension, and provide relaxation. Recipients wear loose-fitting clothing and lie on a massage mat or other cushioned floor mat.

Thai Oil massage incorporates slow strokes, gentle stretches, and stimulation of acupressure points using the palms, thumbs, elbows and knees in combination with the application of base oils.

Like Traditional Thai massage, Thai Oil massage follows traditional Thai healing bodywork concepts — working, opening, and stimulating the so-called Energy Lines, also called the Sib Sen or Sen Lines.
